[audio]Beacon Valves - Matt Samolis
The soothing, haunting sound of a motorized photographic development tray agitator {with full trays attached}. The mechanisms create a lulling rhythm that slowly morphs through time {48 minutes}, while the water gently laps to and fro. I made this recording so that I would not have to lith print endlessly just to enjoy the sound of the tray agitator. Recorded in Somerville MA, USA, for Half Round Records October 2003
